Oh, my. I haven’t always described myself as a girlie-girl, but today’s room of the day leaves me giddy; my heart is all a flutter like I was in the presence of a rock star.
Okay, maybe that’s taking it a step too far, but, boy am I excited by the mixture of colors, both pastel and bold, along with so many roses – my husband would be off the hook for months (wink).
I think what grounds this space, are the warm chocolate tones of the wood floor and table top. If you look closely, you’ll see dark browns repeated in the very small details of the fabrics, the bold pink credenza hardware, and the hanging lampshade chandelier. I especially love the play between the pastels and bold hues that create a whimsical, yet sophisticated affect.
Try this in a small room or nook to give your home a pop of “wow!” Then, tie in connecting rooms with touches of the same colors and/or floral patterns by way of pillows, vases, wall art or other accessories. Yes, this space is quite feminine, but when the woman of the house is happy…everything comes up roses.
Here are some great sites for sourcing out wallpaper and vintage fabrics:
Wallpaper-these shops are great for finding hard-to-find, vintage wall coverings, but they can be expensive. Be sure to look for their “clearance” items or ask if they would be willing to give you a discount on their regular designs. It never hurts to ask!
• designyourwall.com-easy navigating and filtering by color and wearability (for those of you with sticky-fingered kids!)
• Rosie’s Vintage Wallpaper-great for finding patterns from the 30’s, 60’s & 70’s
• Secondhand Rose-lots to choose from, including rare and unusual designs
Fabrics-I love shopping for fabrics online, because the prices are fabulous! I’ve ordered from all three of these stores and love them! Besides their great prices, they also offer loads of notions and other supplies, their fabric selection is enormous, and they deliver in a timely manner.
We pulled some of our favorites in our Wallpaper Ain’t for Wussies post (posting on Wednesday, July 22nd).
How ’bout it HomeJellies? Would you like a space in your home like this one? Or is this a bit too much?
